Traverse City Business News showcased and had a q&a with Amy Reynolds, owner and acting CEO of Horizon Books, Traverse City, Mich., whom it called "the anchor of downtown." She joined the store in 1977 and has helped revitalize downtown. Our favorite answer of hers, in response to the question about her "professional joys":
"There is something different, every day. I love walking to work, greeting staff and customers and being surrounded by books. Whether I'm providing entertainment or information or knowledge, it's exciting and gratifying to match the perfect book to the reader. I do a lot of the sideline buying and love to 'go shopping' for the store."
